Small house or private apartment for rent?

If anyone knows of a small house or private basement/garage apartment for rent, please let me know. A lady I used to work with is living in a bad apartment complex in south Atlanta that is getting worse by the day. She's an older lady (60s.... :D ) and one of the nicest people you'd ever meet. She works from home (online customer support) but doesn't make a ton of money so she's limited in where she can move.

Thanks!

No way I'd live in south Atlanta.

I'll keep my eyes open.

Maybe she could live in your cat's room?

Thanks! Yeah, I can't imagine living in the area she is in right now. Here is her note about what happened a few days ago:

So. The apartment below me came empty again. Folks started to move in about 3 weeks ago. They only started moving furniture last Tuesday (hence the U-Haul) parked outside. I had notice SEVERAL loud altercations between the two by week two. Last Saturday about 11:00pm I woke up to the female banging on the front door and ALL the windows and SCREAMING for him to open the door. This went on for about 20 minutes (I thought he might be dead in there). however he must have opened the door because the banging stopped.

Woke up at 4am to go potty and notice lights outside. There were 3 unmarked police cars, 2 regular police cars and a CSI crime unit out there.

I learned on Monday that there was a domestic dispute and they stabbed each other. BTW she is pregnant. Monday afternoon there were 6 men from the sheriffs office out there.

There has very a little activity since, just a car coming or going occasionally. I don't know what cars are theirs because people from everywhere park out there.

The U-Haul is still there and hasn't moved. That should be quite the bill when it's turned back in.


Maybe I'll rent her the storm shelter....

Beware of scammers!

She sent me a link to a house she was going to look at today. It is a 3br/2.5ba with garage in Jonesboro for $1000/month including utilities. My first thought was that seemed very cheap....too cheap. Turns out it is a scam. The same person has 48 houses listed for rent all over Atlanta with almost all of them listed at $1000/month with utilities. All were posted 3 days ago and all have real listings on Zillow or other websites at much higher rents.

If it is sounds too good to be true, it likely is!

The nationwide eviction moratorium just expired yesterday so I'm guessing rents will be coming down at least some in the coming months as more properties become available.

Maybe. The Libs have made the eviction process long and painful, even in normal times..
